News from Uganda

We are delighted to tell you about a sporting triumph for our partner school in Uganda.  Nakirebe Primary School were invited to represent Uganda, in the netball competition, at the East African International School Games.  As you will see from the photos, not only did they travel to Rwanda to represent their country; they won the competition!!! Congratulations to them all on a truly impressive performance.

Bombs and Blackberries – Year 6 play

Congratulations must go to year 6 for a very successful performance of the play Bombs and Blackberries by Julia Donaldson.  The audience packed the school hall and they were treated to a humorous and heartfelt rendition of a story, set in WW2, about evacuees and their adventures in the countryside; the escapades of their families.  The children have worked really hard during the last few weeks to learn lines and put together a very polished performance.

Year 5 VIPs at Youth Hostel Opening

Y5 were VIP guests at the official opening of Swanage Youth Hostel after its £1.5 million refurbishment. They accompanied the mayor and CEOs of the Youth Hostel to cut the ribbon before being treated to a delicious lunch and some enormous ice-creams! After lunch they had a session learning about dinosaurs and fossil-hunting on the Jurassic Coast and even had the opportunity to go panning for fossils. An amazing day and thank you to everyone at Swanage Youth Hostel for inviting our pupils to be part of this event.

Sponsored Walk

Our amazing children! Thank you to all parents and carers who helped on the walks, and to all who have pledged sponsorship. We had a great – rather hot – day out. Between them, the children walked almost 750 miles!
